Dodgers Up (2-1) And So Likely To Win Their First Title In 32 Years

October 24, 2020

The Los Angeles Dodgers took a 2 games to 1 lead in the 2020 World Series, with a (6-2) Arlington Texas based win, in #3, last night.

Justin Turner set the tone with a 2 out, top 1, home run, vs losing pitcher, Charlie Morton.

The Dodgers added a pair of runs in the 3rd and 4th to back the excellent pitching of Walker Buehler.

The Rays are now (0-2) in game 3 of the World Series, as this series through 3 games is the same as the Phils, Rays, Phils and eventually Phils, Phils 2008 version. That was the only other Rays’ World Series appearance.

T.B. won game 3 and the series in both of their ALCS appearances.

The Dodgers, as L.A. played in their 7th Friday World Series game last night. They have been in one, 3 of the last 4 seasons and were in 3 in 5 seasons from (’77-’81). Counting a win game (that game 2 in the glorious day at Comiskey Park in Chicago), win series result in 1959, the Friday, World Series game winner in an L.A. Dodgers series is (5-1) and now a 5 to 1 “fave” to make it (6-1).

L.A. lost Friday World Series tilts in ’77,’78 and ’17 in eventual World Series losses. In addition to ’59, L.A. had a win/win (think Pesci’s comments to De Niro’s Jake LaMotta in “Raging Bull”) in ’81, while despite an 18 inning win in another excellent Buehler start (that a no decision for him but an L.A. win on Max Muncy’s home run—Muncy had a big 2 rbi single with 2 outs/T3 last night), L.A. lost that series to the Red Sox, who repeated a World Series triumph from 100 years earlier.

The game 4 winner of a Dodgers’ World Series is (17-3) and (12-1) starting in 1955.
